A MODERN APPROACH TO VINTAGE
Free of nostalgia, we look back to look forward.
We view vintage clothing, jewelry and home goods with a modernist eye, exploring how past forms have shaped present ideas.
Always with an appreciation of craftsmanship and quality, we travel the world collecting iconic pieces that are as relevant today as when first created.
We want to inspire and surprise. To shift perceptions and encourage people to re-think vintage and antiques. To form a greater appreciation of old as new.
